Court jesters in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Looks like prosecutors are trying to make up for O.J. Simpson’s ability to elude guilty verdicts of the past, as they slapped him with 11 criminal counts for his role in an alleged robbery (see Essay 4475). Meanwhile, Simpson spent his third night in jail. CourtTV is probably gearing up for its greatest season ever.
• As expected, Isiah Thomas took criticism for his remarks regarding the degrees of nastiness associated with calling women bitches (see Essay 4475). “These actions are typical of a spoiled person that doesn’t have respect for women,” said City Councilman Leroy Comrie. Rev. Al Sharpton added, “I am unequivocally against a person of any race, color or creed calling a person a ‘nigger,’ ‘bitch,’ or ‘ho,’ and further, that no person regardless of his or her race, has the right to make misogynistic or sexist remarks against another person.” Sharpton has obviously never sat near the New York Knicks bench during games.
